Bill O'Reilly's new book talks consent: 'No means no'

Smith criticized President Donald Trump for defending Fox News host Bill O'Reilly from new allegations of sexual harassment.

Trump, 70, defended the anchor to The New York Times on Wednesday, stating that O'Reilly "shouldn't have settled".

I don't know Bill personally, however, I did make two prominent appearances on his television show, the second of which is regrettably the only time I have ever gone on television to "spin" - which is kind of hilarious given the show's "No Spin Zone" nickname.

"It's all catching up with Bill O'Reilly and that sexual harassment enterprise at Fox [News]", she added, referencing the advertisers who have said they will not buy spots during O'Reilly's show The O'Reilly Factor.

Fox News had the highest ratings of any cable news network previous year and 14 of the 15 most popular shows on cable news. O'Reilly has denied wrongdoing and said he supported the settlements so his family wouldn't be hurt.

The cause of the incident is being investigated. "Many of the roads are treacherous", SES spokeswoman Becky Gollings told AAP. Mr Grinham said he felt "helplessness" as he watched air bubbles surfacing in the river but "just couldn't find the car".

"We value our partners and are working with them to address their current concerns about the O'Reilly Factor", Mr. Rittenberg said in an emailed statement.

Sexual harassment claims against O'Reilly follow similar complaints against former Fox executive Roger Ailes, who resigned a year ago to become an adviser to the Trump presidential campaign.

Many advertisers now abandoning O'Reilly are household names and the engine that keeps cable news going, especially in prime time. One media buyer suggested marketers will have a hard time abandoning the program because of its strong, steady ratings performance. His show drew 3.76 million viewers on Monday and 3.65 million on Tuesday, the Nielsen company said.

But similar efforts to force Rush Limbaugh off the radio haven't worked. The increase comes just days after O'Reilly wrapped up a quarter in which he broke the record for total viewership on a cable news show. The company has a contract with Fox that doesn't specify which program its ads will air on, and has no plans to change its strategy, said Cheryl Reed, spokeswoman for the company that offers crowd-sourced reviews of local businesses. Prosecutors have declined to discuss the case, but a lawyer for one of the alleged harassment victims has said his client received a subpoena from a grand jury looking into whether Fox News sought to hide settlements.

Separately, the securities fraud division of U.S. Attorney's office in NY is investigating how 21st Century Fox handled the scandal.
